Shakeology anyone?! Idk the website totally sold me on it but before i place my order i thought id ask you guys:)

The regular shakes look fine. I wouldn't touch their vegan shakes, best I can tell, they don't have all the ammino acids you need.

Now I'll tell you why there is no way in the world I would buy from them. This is a MLM hustle. The product is way overpriced $120 for enough to make 30 shakes.

Caveat emptor, to many companies jump into this market with huge promises, claiming to give you the world in a glass. TBH, I don't believe this can be nearly as beneficial as they claim. And if it were, they wouldn't be marketing it via MLM. People would be beating a path to their door without them having to pay down lines. If you do decide to buy it don't be surprised when they try to make you a "coach" and offer you a "great earning opportunity" along with discounted product

I am a coach as I said but I don't pay anything to be one and I honestly haven't sold a thing. That is why I call myself a "discount coach" I signed to be one just for the discount and I don't have to do anything for it. My husband likes some of their workouts. I would not pay for the coach fees if it were not free and when my husband retires from Active Duty I will quit and pay full price.Notice I haven't given you any of my website details nor will I bc I don't even care if you buy through me or not. I just suggested shakeology bc I like the way they taste... I am not sold on green berry flavor I am too scared to even try....

What do you mean by do they work? I am pre op so I am not sure how they will work after surgery. I use them as a Meal Replacement at Breakfast time now and like them I feel like I get a little energy burst when I drink them so I was reading the label to check for hidden caffeine but haven't seen any must be all the fruit and veg stuff??. The shakes meet the requirements recommended by my clinic but are a little high in carbs @17 my clinic wants 15 or less. The shakes are thicker than other shakes at least the powder mix ones are and they are not good warm. If you look for it one of the reps or the site might have sample sizes for you to try so you are not trying them at the crazy price. I was mistaken about RTDs apparently they are not RTD they are invidual packets to take along for when you are on the go.I thought they had bottles but was confused...

I don't know that they really speed it up. I know that I feel more energized when I drink them and tend to be more active because of the energy and that activity does speed weightloss.

I tried Premier Protein shakes, didn't like it, too much whey aftertaste.

I tried Isopure Clear Protein Drink - alpine punch. 40g Protein per bottle. i didn't like it too much protein aftertaste, i had to delute it with Water and add crystal light to it to make it taste good lol.

-question does anybody know any similar clear Protein drinks like Isopure cherry flavored drinks but that actually taste good?

      Me: Hey Siri, Is it raining outside? (for my morning walks with the dogs)
      Siri: I don't think it's raining at the moment.
      Wet Dogs: Then why are we wet? This damn Siri person is more stupid than we are.

      I received my nutrition book and checklist today! I am so very excited (and a tad bit scared too) Each day this is becoming a reality!
      I created a new blog post about how BRAVE we all are for doing this. Because I think we are! Most of us know the horrors of people calling us nasty names, saying we can't control ourselves, we are easy targets for people's verbal attacks! But I feel we are BRAVE because we are taking control over our lives and creating a new world of happiness.

      Today I scheduled my mental evaluation and my nutritionist appointments. Yes, we are moving along quiet nice.  December 9th will be here before you know it.
      I have informed my inner circle of family about the surgery and I will be keeping it in my CORE!

      Well, it has been a while since I posted here, but my journey continues. As for breaking my stall, I was able to get down to 214 with the help of a friend via our Fitbit fitness trackers which has made me ecstatic! Since that has happened I was fortunate enough to have my insurance company approve a panniculectomy to remove the panniculus (THIS is the correct term, NOT pannus, see this reference: https://www.merriam-webster.com/medical/panniculus) that has been deviling me for years, even before I had bariatric surgery. It was to the point that it was hanging down far enough to cover my pubic area, covered half my thighs when I would sit, and also drooped between my legs which I could hardly manage to keep together when sitting. For any males that may read this, for a woman that is pretty uncivilized, not to mention, unladylike especially when wearing a dress or skirt - just looks slovenly to say the least. Despite the numerous skin issues I had the last couple of years, my health insurance insisted the procedure was cosmetic... 🤐 . I would guess no one that is saying so has been in the bariatric patient's shoes. The damn thing was just getting to be a self-esteem killer in addition to a medical nuisance requiring many visits to my primary care physician, and interfering with my mobility. Now, I realize there are folks with more egregious panniculus sag issues, but the fact that it interferes with mobility is an important consideration.
      One thing I have to say is that this surgery is drastically different from any other I've had. Things occur that are deemed routine, expected even, after a panniculectomy that would be downright unacceptable after any other procedure. This plastic surgery experience is definitely a learning experience that is still unfolding as I key this entry. For one thing, the swelling is a story all it's own, I had no clue my abdomen could get so large, so quickly, without causing my skin to just split open - it's crazy! So far, I'm pleased to have been able to get this procedure despite may be perceived as drawbacks, just to get the pendulous adipose tissue demon off of my person. Here are a few links to information about this procedure for anyone considering it in the future:

I will provide updates periodically on my progress of this surgical recovery. Have a wonderful day!
